Responding to the global demand for Japanese whisky and to the recent influx of counterfeits, Suntory launches its first ever blended whisky drawing from its distilleries in Scotland, Ireland, Canada, America and Japan.

Dubbed Whisky “Ao,” the Yamazaki label incorporates the Japanese word for “blue” in the name of its latest line. Alluding to the seven seas, which link all the famed whisky-producing regions around the globe, the name matches with the liquor’s amalgamated characteristics.

Pricing at approximately $50 USD, the Whisky “Ao” is set to launch in Japan on April 16, but there hasn’t been any flavor profile released yet. Stay tuned for more details of the whisky’s international release date.
